For detective Joe Lombardi, when a body is discovered dangling beneath the Carroll Street Bridge, the first place he turns to for answers is the nearby canal. With its long history of pollution and neglect, the canal has gained a dubious reputation for ruining people's lives -- Joe's included. But to Joe's younger partner, Alan D'Angelo, Joe is little more than a liability, a chain-smoking failure who stands in the way of a much-coveted promotion. Determined to turn the occasion of their investigation to his favor, Alan vows to end Joe's career by beating him to the killer and currying favor with their new boss. But when it comes to the canal nothing is ever what it seems: as Joe and Alan set out to catch their killer, they're about to stumble across an unspeakable secret, one that's waiting for them just beneath the water's dark surface...… (mais)

I really enjoyed this one. I thought it was a basic detective story when I started reading with a very odd detective as the main character, but it soon turned into a creepy horror book. The characters were all a bit odd and the story was as well, but it is a fast engrossing read. ( )

It's a good read with interesting twists, but not for the faint of heart. Daniel Morris has a talent for describing gore that makes you feel like you need to take a step back. ( )

The Canal
By Daniel Morris

This free e-book was received from the LibraryThing Member Giveaway program in exchange for a review.

This book is really one heck of a good horror story. It starts with a bang and has a very twisted ending that you never expect.

The author, Daniel Morris certainly has an excellent capacity to describe all the gory details to the point you can smell and taste your surroundings.

Alan D’Angelo works as a detective in Brooklyn, NY and is the vision epitome of the “Mr. Clean” and of course…partners with Joe Lombardi, “Pigsty Incarnate”. Alan is envious of Joe’s record of always solving any crime that involves The Canal (a cess pool).

When a skinned body is found hanging from a bridge over the canal, Alan vows to solve the murder before Joe does. And the journey begins with Alan trying to beat Joe to the punch at every corner.
Daniel Morris does an excellent job of drawing us into the two characters with all their faults.

This fast paced thriller has the additional benefit of horror thrown in to really make your body twitch as you read along. Pick up the book if you like a frightening and menacing yarn from a twisted mind. ( )

The main characters Paul, Joe and Alan are all affected by the canal, each in his own way. The contrast between dirty, stinky Joe and sparkling clean Alan is interesting. The writing is very descriptive and vivid. You really feel the filth of the canal by the time the book is finished. Enjoyed it anyway. Good murder/mystery/horror mix, I found to be somewhat like Dean Koontz. ( )

The Canal

I received this free ebook from Daniel Morris on Librarything's Member Giveaway.

Detective Joe Lombardi and his collegue Alan D'Angelo are searching the killer of a man found dangling under a bridge. All the clues lead to the canal nearby the bridge of the killed man. But this time something happens other than the usual detective stories.
"The canal was like the world's greatest library of scum - archived, compiled and presented" p. 7

This is not an e-book, it's an e-smell-clean/dirty-book. Joe Lombardi is the image of an old fashioned idea of detective: strange, with unusual habit, dirty. Sometimes this book is confused as a garbage bin: horror?, thriller?, mystery?, Fbi X-files?

Morris takes a lot to change gear (next time, Daniel, automatic transmission), but almost at the end of the book he manages. So, dear reader, don't surrender ...

Some ideas of the Enterprise (the beast of The Canal) remind me of another book: Maldoror by Lautreamont; so those who manage to finish reading this book, could read the other one.

A quote: "The cigarette eventually squiggled from his hands (Joe Lombardi), landing in a stack of other half-formed failures, ... Meanwhile his hands played on. A very avant-garde, Jazz type tune." p. 93 ( )
